We believe that children are a gift from God.
School attendance is not mandatory in African countries. Even when a child wants to attend school, the family might not be able send him, because they do not have the funds to pay school fees, purchase uniforms and school supplies.
The possibility of school attendance is further reduced for children who have been orphaned. Children who have lost their parents are a lot less likely to continue in school than children with parents.
The World Health Organization estimates that there are over 25 million orphaned children in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Many African countries are phasing out orphanages, and are placing orphans with extended family, (aunts, uncles, or grandparents), or, if relatives are not available, with another family in the community.
We believe that children are our future, and that any plans for long term sustainability of our planet must include a plan to improve the lives of people in all parts of the world.
The best way to improve lives of people is through education. Education of children in developing countries must be accomplished before any meaningful progress in increasing the standard of living can be made.
We believe that in order to empower our youth to take charge of their future and our planet, we must first educate them so that they are equipped to make the important decisions that will affect not only them, but the whole world.
